Mets Prospect Justin Dunn Scratched With Arm Tightness

St. Lucie Mets starter Justin Dunn was scratched from his start tonight minutes before the game after appearing to injure himself during warm ups.

The Mets first round pick in 2016 left with right arm tightness according to early reports.

Dunn, 21, has struggled in his first season in full season ball with a 5.00 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 95.1 innings for St. Lucie. He has struck out only 75 and walked an alarming 48 batters in that span.

Some good news on the night is recently acquired Gerson Bautista threw 2.1 scoreless innings with two strikeouts. He hit 100 MPH with his fastball and 89 MPH with his slider.

Peter Alonso also belted his 15 the home run of the season in only 257 at-bats.
